Hi everyone. I'm Cath and new here and hope you don't mind me asking this: I need to gave a full hysterectomy in six months as a result of large cysts and kissing ovaries. There is a high chance that damage to my bowel will occur and I will need a stoma etc for a while afterwards while my bowel recovers. This scares me way more than having the hysterectomy. Has anyone here had experience of this? I'd love to know how you coped with it and any advice on what to expect would be wonderful. Thank you!
